I am fascinated by The Golf Channel’s coverage of The Open at Royal Liverpool.
So far this week, they have broadcast seven hours of ‘live’ coverage each day — followed by a repeat of that same coverage in the evening hours — and the golf tournament hasn’t even started yet.
That’s three days, 14 hours per day, of nothing but press conferences, talking heads and video of a practice round or two.
But no golf.
When the tournament begins on Thursday — at 4am ET, mind you — ESPN has the honors of showing actual rounds of golf.
Sucks to be the baby of the (cable) family, am I right?

Emma, I have seen your future, and you are a success!
Let me explain.
My brother recently posted this picture of his granddaughter Emma sporting reindeer antlers at her school’s Christmas concert. Her holiday headgear and mischievous smile reveal a lot — a fun-loving, entertaining youngest child.
No, I’m not talking about me (although as the baby of the family, I have been known to grab the spotlight from time to time). I mean Emma’s actual doppelganger.
I’ve met her.
This is Stacey.
She’s an MBA candidate at the Boston University School of Management. And when I showed her Emma’s photo, she was quick to agree that the two were kindred spirits.
Emma, you are in excellent company.
